Tim Tebow makes no apologies about it.
He is a believer of Jesus Christ and even has his own patented prayer move.
He makes a lot of Christians happy.
He makes a lot of Christians nervous.
I’ll admit, I have said a few times things like…
“Take it down a notch Tebow.”
My friends and I sometimes watch what he does through our fingers, as if watching a scary movie.
He sings Lord I Lift Your Name On High on national television.
He gets mocked on SNL for pulling the God card in every single thing he says.
He prays to God to win a football game, as if somehow God cares about the outcome of the game.
[stepping back from lightening bolt you real football fans think is about to strike]
Kurt Warner, the former highest level offender, even took opportunity to tell Tebow to turn it down a notch…
Then yesterday happened.
I was suddenly proud of Tebow.
I was like… “Look at that great Christian role model! I’m a fan!”
I’m such a #$@@* hypocrite.
So no. I’m not embarrassed by Tim Tebow.
I should be embarrassed by Carlos Whittaker.
My embarrassment is not about Tim Tebow. It’s always about ME.
What people will think of ME.
Because no matter how cheesy…
No matter how brash…
He is 100% more open about his faith on a daily basis than I am.
The nervous feeling that we get is not wanting him to embarrass US as opposed to Christ.
Truth is…Christ is more embarrassed by Christians who are embarrassed by Tim Tebow, than anything Tebow will ever do.
